Notes & Reviews:

The Originals Series offers listeners the opportunity to explore key albums from the Yellow Label's LP era and experience the power and passion of performances by a host of visionary artists. Now DG welcomes ten new titles to the range, including Simon Preston's fascinating album of Italian Renaissance vocal music. Leading the Choir of Westminster Abbey, Preston conducts works by Palestrina, Allegri, Anerio, Nanino and Giovannelli.

Hi-Fi News
Simon Preston has drilled the Abbey Choir into arguably the most finely-tuned, subtly balanced and rich-toned of polyphonic ensembles, and the spacious acoustic of All Saints Tooting gives the singing a near-ideal measure of reverberation.

Notes & Reviews:
